Innovative cartographic techniques, graphics and satellite imagery provide engaging, up-to-date material for students to work with. The Jacaranda Atlas Sixth Edition represents the pinnacle of achievement in atlas publishing. This excellence is part of a heritage in which every Australian geography student can share.
